As the inventor of the avalanche airbag, ABS revolutionized winter sports in 1985. 35 years later, the product design has been completely renewed, following the principles of simple & safe - light & fast: With the A.CROSS, ABS presents for the first time a minimalist and functionally well thought-out daypack without ABS® airbag system for off-hours touring in secured terrain. Unlike conventional daypacks, it is equipped with an integrated safety compartment for avalanche safety equipment such as shovel, probe and first aid kit. Since things have to move particularly fast in an emergency, the Emergency Flap, a simple pull system in red signal color, allows immediate access to it. Another special feature is the patented shoulder-hip belt carrying system, which not only saves weight, but also allows a compact adjustment to the back with optimal weight distribution. The A.CROSS can be adapted to individual requirements not only by means of the volume expansion system from 8 to 12 liters, but also by means of the flexible ABS® GridLab system. With this strap system, helmet or jacket, for example, can be fastened quickly and easily. It is also possible to attach the helmet to the backpack with the specially designed HelmetGrid. Another exciting feature of this stylish daypack, which can also be used flexibly for other sports, is the price: The A.CROSS is available (in a set with the new A.SSURE equipment with probe and shovel) for only 249 USD RRP.

SKI BACKPACK

Ski backpacks as well as snowboard backpacks are special for the secured terrain. Secured terrain means prepared slopes as well as cleared ski routes, which are marked by the ski areas. Traditional ski backpacks are perfect for adventures in this terrain. The backpacks offer you storage space to stow everything you need. If space is at a premium, any backpack is suitable for this task. But when it comes to safety, normal ski backpacks unfortunately cannot compete. The new ABS A.CROSS combines exactly these aspects. It not only convinces with its minimalist design, but can also score points when it comes to safety.

The new ABS A.CROSS ski backpack is specially designed for all ski tours and adventures in secured terrain. The topic of safety should never be neglected. Avalanches are unpredictable and can happen right next to the secured terrain. To always be on the safe side, the A.CROSS backpack is equipped with a safety compartment. There is enough space for an avalanche shovel, avalanche probe and first aid kit. The ski touring backpack is the perfect companion for the next ski tour after work, but also for any other experience in the secured terrain. So you have no excuse to do without the extra safety on the mountain.

ADVANTAGES OF A SKI BACKPACK

The A.CROSS backpack presents itself with well thought-out features and functions to support you on the mountain in the best possible way. With the minimalist and functional day tour backpack, ABS presents for the first time a ski backpack without the ABS airbag system. In contrast to normal ski backpacks, the A.CROSS is equipped with a safety compartment and thus offers safety on the slopes. With its design and packing volume, the backpack is the perfect companion in secured terrain as well as for a short tour after work. It is characterised by its compactness and, with a volume of 8 litres, offers storage space for essential equipment. It can be used as a backpack for snowboarding as well as a rucksack for skiing. The backpack is also equipped with many additional features.

Safety compartment

The ski backpack is equipped with an integrated safety compartment that offers space for emergency equipment. Unlike normal backpacks, this means you always have the necessary equipment with you and have even more ski safety for the time you spend in the snow. In the so-called RescUnit there is enough space for shovel, probe and first aid kit. For this reason you never have to pack your equipment separately, it is always integrated in the backpack with safety compartment. The Emergency Flap allows access to the equipment with just one hand movement. The safety features such as the pull system are specially marked in the red signal colour.

Carrying system

The combination of Strapsystem and the patented shoulder hoof strap allows quick adjustment of the backpack and is also weight-saving. The continuous length adjustment can be optimally adapted to the back and the fit by means of a handle. The padded carrying strap and the special back padding ensure ideal carrying comfort. In addition, the padding protects in case of a fall from the equipment such as shovel and probe in the backpack.

Extension system

If there is not enough space, there are various possibilities to increase the volume of the ski backpack. With the GripLab system you can adjust the universal straps as you wish. There is room for an additional jacket, helmet, ski or snowboard. If the storage space is still too small, the Extension Zipper. By opening the zipper, the base of the backpack can be extended and additional equipment can be stowed away easily. The Extension Zipper expands the volume in moments from 8 litres to 12 litres. If you need to carry more than 8 to 12 litres, you can also attach the helmet to the backpack. The additional helmet holder, which can be attached to the back of the ski backpack, is used for this purpose. The rucksack can be extended with a helmet holder and offers maximum space for additional equipment.

DIFFERENCE AVALANCHE BACKPACK AND SKI BACKPACK

When do you need an avalanche backpack and when is the ski backpack sufficient? The essential difference is the airbag system. While ski backpacks are specially designed for secured terrain, an avalanche backpack is for adventures in open terrain. There you are as soon as you leave the marked routes, which can already be right next to the piste. In open terrain you are exposed to alpine dangers and avalanches can occur at any time. For this reason it is recommended to always have an avalanche backpack with emergency equipment in the so-called backcountry. Even if an avalanche backpack cannot prevent an avalanche, it still helps to keep you on the surface of the snow masses. In ski resorts, the approved slopes are specially prepared and checked for safe skiing. Therefore the risk of an avalanche is very low. However, an avalanche can also occur on the slopes next to the pistes. With the ABS A.CROSS ski backpack you are perfectly equipped for any incident, even in secured terrain.
